Discover the unique cultural traditions and rich biodiversity of the Smokies by hitting the trail. Fall color reaches its peak this time of year. Watch the spectacular colors progress through out the week. Explore these ancient mountains with daily hikes through breathtaking scenery. Hikes will be 5-13 miles in length, making this program strenuous. In the evenings, enjoy a fine meal at the Institute, followed by Appalachian music and tales, programs on mountain wildlife, or stories around the campfire. Program lasts from Sunday supper through Friday.
